i updated the drivers the other day with the help of you good folks, today i thought i would check out the performance on my tv and found that the only display on tv was desktop without icons and in black and white no matter what i was watching on pc, after fiddling around with settings for graphics card and tv tool i was able to restore full tv operation, my problem now is that when i play content on pc i get sound but no pic but tv images are fine, i have one or two players like vlc etc all are the same what have i done please? xp pro sp2 and above graphics

been playing some more and find that in nvidia settings when switched to clone view pc behaves ok but tv shows sound but no vision, situation is reversed when switched to dual view.

any evening takers?

Just a thought, have you checked the graphics settings to be sure that you are in PAL for the TV and not NTSC?

yes that was what restored the colour for me, the prob is i can see the media player on the tv and get sound from any content being played but no vision, and vice versa between pc and tv, i used to be able to have both working ok at the same time before for making videos etc.at the moment it seems i can only have one or the other even though tv tool is set to display items on both at the same time.

Have you ticked the box for Force TV Detection?

Im not sure but this may be somthing to do with the new nvidea drivers and macrovision protection they have now,have you tried uninstalling and trying older drivers?

  johnnyrocker 09:30 09 Mar 2006

yes i have and it makes no difference, acolyte that is what i am going to do if i get nowhere with current prob.
